Re: Family Affair?

My wife came to my 2nd or 3rd ever class; back in the day when neither of us had a gi, and the club only had blue foam wrestling mats. She started a couple of years back and has been hooked ever since. She's on a bit of a break with our 1 year old, but is itching to get back.

As her (and most everyone else in the club)'s senior, it sometimes got sticky when I tried to teach her particular things; I was either being too vague or too direct, or demanding too much, not to mention the whole spouse angle. Here's a hint (mate or no) for everyone; not everyone learns the same way, and some people you just can't teach. And that's fine.

Others are already asking when my boy is going to start. Good thing our club has a minimum age of 16!
